Opioid Crisis

Prescription opioids provide necessary analgesia to millions of Americans, yet the country faces soaring rates of opioid diversion, NO Opioidaddiction, and overdose deaths. As a direct response, in 2010, Florida’s legislature addressed pill mills, or rogue pain management clinics where prescription drugs are inappropriately prescribed and dispensed. In September 2011, Florida’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) became operational. Florida’s PDMP uses an electronic database to collect information about prescription drugs dispensed within the state. Florida-based prescribers and dispensers access the PDMP’s information to review individuals’ history to identify and address problematic practices such as physician shopping..

Dr. Gleicher and all providers at FPP take this crisis very seriously and assist all patients in weaning any controlled substances. FPP is a proud partner with the Charlotte County Sheriffs office in this endeavor.
